Mitsubishi Electric has unveiled two new premium air treatment products, the MA-E85R-A Air Purifier and MJ-EV38HR-A Dehumidifier, for the Australian market.

Announced at a product launch event held in Sydney, the MA-E85R-A Air Purifier (pictured above) and MJ-EV38HR-A Dehumidifier (pictured below), priced at $1,199 and $1,699 respectively, are made in Japan to deliver high-quality engineering and market leading performance.

The MA-E85R Air Purifier helps improve indoor air quality and reduce exposure to common asthma and allergy triggers, including dust, pollen, pet allergens and some gases.

Unlike other products available in the Australian market, the Mitsubishi Electric MA-E85R Air Purifier features an auto cleaning pre-filter that rotates and collects dusts into a compartment, for maximum performance.

Premium product filters include a high performance two-layered HEPA filter, capable of catching up to 99.97% of ultra-fine particles in the air, down to those as small as 0.3μm; a 500g activated carbon filter which removes harmful gases and unpleasant odours; while the platinum catalyst filter uses nanotechnology to absorb various odorants and deodorise the air.

The MA-E85R also offers a three-step clean light monitor which indicates the levels of indoor air contamination for dust, PM2.5 small particles and odour, as well as smart search sensors to detect airborne allergens and pollutants.

Mitsubishi Electric Australia business development executive, Jean-Marc Adele said, “The MA-E85R Air Purifier is an exciting addition to the market, bringing with it almost 50 years of expert knowledge and Japanese engineering by Mitsubishi Electric. The device’s Smart Search Sensors are incredibly advanced, with high precision PM2.5 and odour sensors continuously scanning the room to detect and capture airborne allergens and pollutants.”

The MJ-EV38HR Dehumidifier features precision humidity control designed to remove excess moisture from the air and maintain a comfortable level of humidity all year round helping to reduce the risk of dampness and mould in homes.

Inverter Technology constantly adjusts the power and running speed of the compressor according to the humidity level in the air, resulting in a more energy-efficient operation. The direction of airflow can be set for upward, to the rear or wide.

The MJ-EV38HR Dehumidifier boasts intelligent laundry and air purification modes to balance moisture levels indoors, while an Auto Eco mode allows users to set the desired humidity level between 50 and 70% and the unit will automatically turn off or on accordingly.

“One in five Australians have a problem with mould at home, while one in six have damp rooms. Based on our knowledge of the market, the issues that we know everyday families are dealing with, and our new research findings, bringing these high-performance products to market was the perfect next step in Mitsubishi Electric Australia’s growth,” Adele said.
